Last night, as part of the pre-budget consultations, the provincial government held a consultation with the public in Dauphin.

 

 

The Minister of Finance, Cameron Friesen, along with local MLA Brad Michaleski; MLA for Swan River, Rick Wowchuk; and MLA for Riding Mountain, Greg Nesbitt heard what constituents in Dauphin had to say about the upcoming 2018 budget.

 

A number of concerns came up such as health care, the MRI machine for Dauphin, taxation of farmland and lack of cell phone service in rural areas.
